Explore the winding footpaths and beautiful views of Cogra Moss, near Ennerdale Bridge

Cogra Moss is a beautiful enclosed forest surrounding a reservoir which is now used by the Cockermouth Angling Association.

The walk up to the dam is along surfaced tracks. Beyond the dam a number of unsurfaced paths provide you with great access around the reservoir in a loop.

For the more adventurous, the walk up onto the top of Blake Fell is harder but provides fantastic views of the northern lake district fells, Scotland, the Solway Coast and Isle of Man.

Things to do

Extend your woodland adventure with an unforgettable stay at Cogra Moss.

The Bunkhouse is an ideal place to stay and is only 10 minutes walk from the reservoir.

Cogra Moss provides a great opportunity for you to fly fish for trout from the bank and natural islands.

There are a variety of lies, including gravel and stony beds, sand banks, shallow bays and deeper channels. Waders are recommended.

There is a well-established Brown Trout population and Rainbow Trout are stocked monthly throughout the season.

A permit is required for fishing on the reservoir.

Walking at Cogra Moss is the perfect way to get some fresh air and explore some of the area's most beautiful landscapes.

The walk from Felldyke car park to the reservoir and back is a popular short walk.

Longer walks around the reservoir and up onto Blake Fell are more demanding and require good foot wear but nonetheless enjoyable.
